a wonderful new style of porcelain decorating-- what's known as the limoges enamel style-- a very fine use of white enamel on a dark background. and he taught his son t.j. bott to do it as well. and thomas john bott then brought that to coalport. so, thomas john bott here in 1888 at coalport, producing a plaque just for the family. we've got a matching picture of his sister, actually, as well. there's a set of them. wonderful to have family likenesses like that. i understand that thomas bott, sr.-- thomas j. bott's father-- died quite young at the age of 41, and i had-- the story goes that he died from licking his paintbrush, which arsenic in it, and that's a family story. i don't know whether it's true. i'm sure it probably was. of course, it was a dangerous industry to be in. and thomas bott, sr. was a great loss to the industry because he was actually a masterful artist and was able to do wonderful work. and that's really what excites me about these pictures. are these thomas, sr.? yes, this is not t.j. oh, we thought it was junior. yeah. this is signed "t.b."-- and that's thomas bott,
household sale, but it intrigued us because we have quite a big house and we wanted to fill it with some exotic furniture. well, it's certainly exotic. i would like to tip it upside down and see a signature, but there isn't one. i'm looking for a particular name. so you've never researched this unusual, extraordinary bit of furniture? no, no. we know nothing about it. it's in the style of liberty & company, the famous london company. oh, yes. and that helps me date it. actually, this type of stool is called a thebes stool, taken from the egyptian ruins, the pyramids, thebes. ah, right. one of the designers was leonard wyberg patented in 1884, and so i can't really date it very accurately, but it would seem through about 1884 and 1920, that sort of range. but what is really unusual to me-- i have seen quite a few of these before. they're relatively rare and they're certainly collected. i've never seen one with this extraordinary hieroglyphics. so it's african, but it's actually copying the egyptian. and these are very, very, i'm afraid, crude egyptian hieroglyphics. yes. so you just had i
of us had graduated, she'd had four abortions. >> what happened to her? >> nothing. she just became a statistic. >> so then you get it. i don't want to be like your friend yvette. >> all right, brianna, i guess i do understand, but you've got to know that will does not approve of you taking these pills. >> well, can you talk to him? please? >> all right, brianna, i'm gonna talk to him, all right? but he's gonna want talk to you, too. >> all right. we'll talk when i get back from the game. thanks, sasha. thanks. hey, will. bye, will. >> hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. where you going? >> just gonna go meet my friends at the game. >> okay, so you two... >> yeah, we talked. >> oh, yeah? >> mm-hmm. >> and you're okay? and you know we're just looking out for you, right? >> yeah, i know. thanks. >> okay. well, enjoy the game. >> thanks. >> hey, wait. don't have too much fun. >> yeah, okay. i'll have an okay time. >> oh, that's perfect. oh, wait, wait! i got something for you. >> you did? >> yeah. all right. all right. wait till you see this. bam!

[ school bell rings ] >> all right, who can tell me what a contraction is? >> i got this. it's like when you get signed by the nba, like i'm gonna be. they make you sign a contraction so you can get paid. >> so you can stay in school. that's a contract. okay, we talked about this. come on. geoffrey. >> a contraction is when two or more words are combined to make a new word. >> oh, good. you have an example? >> i got one. >> okay. >> it's like when you put "he" and "is" together, right? >> all right. use it in a sentence. >> okay, like geoffrey. >> uh-huh. >> he's a loser. he's never gonna have a girlfriend. he's so -- >> andrew! that's enough. >> my name's a.t., cora. >> i know you're not talking to me. you got me mixed up, sweetheart. you don't call me cora. it's miss simmons to you. and i know your mother, and i used to change your diapers. and it wasn't that long ago, so don't get it twisted. >> what are y'all laughing at? it's not that funny. >> oh, yeah, it's
which must be token. it can't have been used. because i am sure this part is a porcupine quill, so you've probably got a bit of coral on the top, gold, and a lovely silk tassel. i think this is probably one of your early ones. in pictures, you see them around about 1860. well, i was going to say mid. it's very early. mid to second half of the 19th century, and i would put somewhere around 300 to 500 on that. and then you've got another gold one here. is this a swaine one as well? it is, yeah. now, that's an earlier one, because that just says swaine and co., london, so that is stunning, isn't it? i bought a box of whips in a lot deal in a farm sale. that was at the bottom of the box and it was still in its original tissue paper. i didn't realize even that it was a whip until i pulled it out, ripped the paper off, and i found that. it's in a brand new state. it is, isn't it? and i think it's--yeah. and that probably must be worth £1,000. lovely. well, thank you very much. well, thank you very much for looking at them for me. i see by the fact that this has a cyrillic inscription on
to be honest with her. the truth will set you free. >> yeah, set us free. make us... free >> i don't want to be free. i want to be married in bondage. at least until she leaves. oh, i should have just asked the colonel. >> well, the colonel not here, and i'm sure not gonna volunteer for that. >> and lying won't help, miss edna. >> well, there are no men here. >> i beg your pardon. >> maybe -- maybe i'll settle for brown. >> maybe you won't. the devil is a liar. >> oh, please. please, brown. please, just until she leaves. >> no, edna! unh-unh, edna. i'm just getting the hives thinking about it. >> she's only gonna be here a few more hours. come on, just pretend you're my husband until she leaves. brown, please. >> no! edna, get your hands off. get your paws off of me! >> please, brown! >> edna, look. i'm not fixing to sacrifice my religion just so you can tell a lie. i'm not gonna do it. >> i'll give you double my rent this month. >> oh, well, baby, you shoulda said that earlier.

the little gun to the ladies who sit in the back for protection, and obviously he would use it for his guard. i think that's very interesting. there's a reference in the diary, isn't there, to pistols being cleaned at lancaster. yes. he's actually stated that. now, i think that the pistols that were cleaned at lancaster were not these two pistols. do you really? yeah, because the mail would be issued with its own pistols, and they would be much bigger and much more effective than these two. this one here is a cheap little birmingham pocket pistol that, when it was made, if you'd have paid five shillings for it, it would have been probably about right, so really very cheap. perfectly effective for one shot, but not really the thing that you would want to guard a mail catch with. the other one's a bit more interesting, because, if you've only got one go with that, then you've got six with this one. it's an early type of revolver that we call a pepper box. it differs from a true revolver because the barrels are all put together in a group, rather than having a rotating cylinder that shoots thro
of, like, just going in the best room and that smell of not always being a room that's used. it's a bit special. this furniture, which is vaguely in a sort of tudor revival style, a bit of 18th century, this is what britain liked through the twenties and thirties. it's oak, it's very nicely made, and it's what was in every house. it's not valuable. i am not going to tell you this is not the great roadshow moment. i'm not going to say, "did you know it's worth £5,000?" and you say, "oh, my god." go on. oh, my god! that's it. it's actually worth probably about 150, 200. but that's not the point. no, it's not. i mean, i like it because of what you told me about it. and i think for most of us that's what it's about. it's all about memories. it is, totally. and these are great memories. for you. without a doubt. yes, definitely great memories. thank you. okay. thank you. now that is what i call a wine glass. god, what a blinder. i'm really pleased you brought this in. you've known it for ages, i presume. it's been at my mother's house. we know nothing about it. my mother had to go i
